Orangutans hanging from canopies, rice terraces rising to the skies, stone ruins strangled by tree roots, offshore dive sites teeming with life and the tallest mountain range on the planet. There’s so much to see in the world’s biggest continent.
A land of extremes
From the unassailable heights of the Himalayas to the pits of China’s Lintong District that hold the Terracotta warriors, Asia is a place of yin and yang. Mountainside temples provide relief from chaotic super cities, food to live by is prepared alongside insectile delicacies and the ancient art of yoga and spirituality clashes with technological obsession that's hurtling us into the future.
A world forgotten
Asia is ancient. Roam the dusty tracks of Nepalese mountain ranges, clamber through thick Indonesian rainforests and swing your feet from the saddle atop the Mongolian steppes as Genghis Khan once did. There’s the mighty Angkor kingdom of Cambodia, Japanese philosophies etched on temple walls and komodo dragons in the Flores Sea.
Food and sustenance
What better reason is there to travel than for a decent meal? Gorge street side on steaming ribbons of Pad Thai in Thailand or slurp at ramen bowls alongside Hong Kong businessmen. Join the lunchtime hordes for Indian street food or recover from the night before with a South Korean ‘hangover soup’.
